No.4 Under the Sea bento

This is my 'under the sea' bento. The base is sushi rice coloured with two drops of blue food colouring while cooking. The octopus body is a cut radish and the tentacles, which I found very effective, were made from thin strips of skinned cucumber. More cucumber makes up the fronds of seaweed and a few torn pieces of chorizo are there to make coral. In the second later I have a cheese fishy, tinted a bit with some yellow and black food colouring. There are also some carrot crabs and black olive rocks. This bento took a little over half an hour to make because I hadn't planned it beforehand and I wasn't sure what was going in it.
